If on your Mac Jan, highlight the unwanted email > edit > delete.

Thanks Drew

Right click to highlight, delete from drop down box, I didn't know that before.
I thought I needed to click on the email which opens it and delete it using the dustbin.
I still have to delete it from trash though.
What do you mean edit?

When in your Mail App. you need to left click the unwanted email, to highlight it.

By left clicking it once it will only be highlighted, not opened.

You then left click Edit in the Menu bar, Delete will be highlighted

Left click Delete, this will delete the unwanted email without having to open it.

You will now be able to Delete it from the Trash folder.

Depending on how you have your Spam settings set, you may have to remove the unwanted email address from your Previous Recipients List.

Do you know how to remove Unwanted Previous Recipients from your computer?

I canīt see where that is any different to what I am doing Drew, probably my thick head, but as soon as I left click an email I can read it.
So I don't actually open any of my emails by one click that means I never open them because I only ever click once never double click.

Apologies for not getting back to you before now Jan, I've been giving my friend a shoulder to cry on, he lost his wife to Alzheimer's last week and is in turmoil at the moment.

What version of mail are you using? Click Mail then About Mail. I am using 11.5 (3445.9.1)

Thats a sad thing so sorry to hear that.
My late brothers wife in Australia has dementia and she doesn't know her daughter until she has been sitting with her for a while. I hope neither of us will suffer from that terrible disease.

My mail is Version 12.1 (3445.101.1)

It used to be dodgy just opening an email if it contained a virus but generally thats not the case now. The main scams now are fraudulent, phishing or ransom emails that require you to fall for the scam and respond either by clicking a link in the email or coughing up money. As long as you dont respond or click any of the links you should be fine.

Ah well yes 😨
I had an email yesterday which had my friend and her brother, also a friend, both their addresses on it with a link in the text part, I thought it was something like the farcebook emails and clicked it and was taken to a German Bitcoin page. I emailed my friend and she rang me today to say her brothers email has been hijacked.
I've run the malwarebytes and it says I am clean.
